2019 BLAMEY STAKES – RACE ANALYSIS AND TIPS

Good pace across the barriers with Holbein the likely leader. MATERIAL MAN is a classy WA galloper who hasn’t missed by far his two runs in Melbourne at G1 level. He comes to the mile 3U and has won 5/7 the trip. Didn’t have much luck last time and can win from the rails draw.

BEST OF DAYS posted a strong peak beaten less than a length FU in the Orr at G1 level and then refused to take part in the Futurity after that. He’s a big player here sorted out. THEANSWERMYFRIEND will push forward and ran his best race placing here the latest at his first go for Waller. Should get favours in the run and see it out okay.

JOHANNES VERMEER resumes for Team Williams and was just beaten in the Caulfield and Melbourne Cups for Aidan O’Brien. Draws wide but is the class runner and the early markets suggest he’s ready to go. MANUEL and FIFTY STARS go in the multiples.

R7 FLEMINGTON 2 March 2019
Blamey Stakes 3U , 1600m
Race Synopsis: Talented four-year-old Fifty Stars, who has having his third run this preparation, recorded his seventh win and his second stakes victory in 11 starts in scoring here. He settled nicely in sixth place, one off the rails, moved up strongly on straightening, hit the front on passing the 300m and fought back gamey to win in a photo. So Si Bon settled back in second-last place in the 14-horse field from a wide barrier, improved between runners on turning for home, got a split at the 300m and finished well for a late-closing second. Cool Chap was ninth on the rails, got a split at the 300m and battled on nicely for third. Johannes Vermeer settled in last place from his outside barrier, went deep on turning for home and then finished strongly for an eyecatching (2.3 lengths) fourth on his first run since finishing second in the Melbourne Cup (Gr 1, 3200m) in November.
